limiting the deductions there have been proposals from governor romney during the presidential campaign, and from other republicans, when you talk about those limitations on deductions, do you include the charitable deduction and the home mortgage deduction? >> i think you're right to point out the essential problem in this, which is, if you try to limit deductions with a $25,000 cap, what you do is you end up hitting millions and millions -- actually 17 million americans -- a huge part of the revenue comes from that basic fact, which we're not prepared to do -- it completely eliminates the incentives for wealthy americans to give to charities and if you protect the charitable contributions you reduce. so, those proposals, they may be worth considering, but if you design them carefully, they don't raise revenue you need to get us back to a fiscally responsible position. >> are you saying that the charitable deductions should be off the table? >> we propose a percentage limit on the value of all of the deductions and inclusions for 2% of americans. what that does is, it preserves a very

. it's your fault. when mitt romney said the 47% comment and when he was recovered on that finance call after losing the election saying that, you know, obama will be giving out presents to people and you had some serious people in the room and say mitt romney is wrong. he shouldn't be saying this. >> that's not how we feel they certainly govern like they feel that way. you can listen to talk shows and hear anybody underscore what mitt romney's sentiment was but as far as congress was, republicans gone like mitt romney talks. >> yeah. >> they have no qualms making it clear that they believe that they are a much of moochers out there and that they shouldn't be helping anybody. >> we know they don't care about the middle class. yesterday, on the floor of the united states senate, they also proved they don't care about the disabled people. here is bob dole a man i love a general american war hero. he is very funny, a wicked sense of humor and he was the author of the americans for disabilities act. >> tom harkin. >> back in 1990. george h.w. bush signed it

to the white house hat must have been an extraordinary moment. mitt romney and obama get together. for me it's awkward that they had the meeting at the white house. was that mean? shouldn't they have don't at a tgif. neutral ground? not to rub his nose in the place that he wanted to live. >> reporter: given romney's finances, -- he came here, he left without talking to reporters. we are digging for details on how it went. the white house insists they were trying to be open and courteous to mitt romney. show the peaceful transfer -- there is no violence. the race was hard fought. mr. obama won, in romney moves on and mr. romney also sat down with another important man in all this. fall ryan his running-mate. that would be interesting to be a fly on the wall. megyn: there are funny lines on twitter about that meeting and what should have been served at the meeting. thank you, sir. a white house social media effort to tip the public opinion in its favor on these fiscal cliff negotiations is starting to get controversial. the president urging americans to go to twitter and tweet my2k. do you kno
. it is chile, right? martha: turkey chile. bill: president obama hosting governor mitt romney for a private lunch at white house. this is the photo released by the white house, shaking hands at the oval house. they had a lunch, hour long, no media or press cameras. press press was asked about it. listen here. melissa: nothing is preventing you from speaking with governor romney about it. well, that is obviously up to former governor romney to decide whether he wants to have a conversation with you. and, you're welcome, when the president, next appears before you to ask him about it. we will provide a readout. but we didn't, i think they wanted to have, each man wanted to have a private conversation. they didn't want to turn it into a press event. bill: we hear that governor romney congratulated the president on his campaign and wished himself. they promised to stay in contact if there are opportunities to work on shared interest. don't hold your breath. martha: a new government report out shows americans cut back on their spending last month and saw no growth in their incomes. the commerce
to president obama once again this year. not as much so as in 2008, but a big advantage over governor romney. 59 to 37%. why do you think that was? >> you know, we were able to make strides among the youth, decreasing the president's lead from 2008. this year we carried 37% of all 18 to 29-year-olds. this was a big accomplishment for the republican national college commit. we had our largest field staff out. 63 field reps in 25 battle ground states and together they produced about 7.2 million live voter contacts and recruited 52,000 new cr's. so we were tremendously proud of our field efforts. and i think that's largely what you see reflected in those numbers. if you really break down those numbers, though, governor romney made big leaps and strides among the white male vote of 18 to 29-year-olds, but we still suffered as a party with young women and young minority voters. so i think that overall, this says to college republicans that we'll have to engage more with the communities and really refine our message when talking to those folks. >> rick: meghan, how much of it do you think is socia
have reported on the exit polls that show governor mitt romney captured less than 30% of the latino vote on election day. years earlier former president george w. bush or bush 43 won much higher support among that demographic. now he has some advice on how the g.o.p. can regain its footing. plus, the navy's blue angels working to ensure that every kid gets presents this holiday season. even children whose neams were right in the path of super storm sandy. we are live on the ground in jersey. that's next. i've worked hard to build my family. and also to build my career. so i'm not about to always let my frequent bladder urges, or the worry my pipes might leak get in the way of my busy lifestyle. that's why i take care, with vesicare. once-daily vesicare can help control your bladder muscle and is proven to treat overactive bladder with sympts of frequent urges and leaks day and night. if you have certain stomach or glaucoma problems, or trouble emptying your bladder, do not take vesicare. vesicare may cause allergic reactions that may be serious. if you experience swelling of the fac
17 people over, half were puerto ricans, mexican, i was the only one who voted for romney. the only one in the room. i got to tell you something, they sold the idea that republicans, more black people voted for obama because they were afraid of romney. not because they loved obama but they were so fearful of romney and republicans. >> i think it is a case of actions speaking louder than words. you can say to people we like you and we are inclusive but if you don't have representatives there that look like me or have been in my shoes i am not going to believe it. doesn't matter if you are a person of color, if you're a woman or a person of a certain economic background you need that representation and you need those people to say i am a representative -- didn't have enough of those -- >> at some point it becomes pandering if you are just rolling out one black or hispanic -- [talking over each other] charles: you have to start the republicans started two weeks ago, got to the grass roots. you can't just show up. you have to be prepared. i don't think a blanket message is going to work
a normal fee for service medicare to some sort of premium support plan. mitt romney adopted that in the campaign. interestingly, pete domenici and allison rivlin advocated what romney campaigned on as a fundamental change in medicare. i do think this is a reflection of progress they're exchanging numbers on paper. i talked to the senate democratic leadership. they said, we're not going to react until we hear from the white house. the president is going to have a photo op in a few minutes with the bulgarian president. we'll see if the president gets thrown a question and whether he offers a reaction. haven't heard anything from white house staff so far in reacting to this, guys. >> essentially they're picking up negotiations where they left off in august of '11 when the grand bargain fell apart. isn't this what we're talking about here? >> that is right. the speaker's office clarified the proposal they essentially laid down is drawn from erskine bowles' individual testimony to the super committee in the fall of 2011. that is to say, not the simpson/bowles recommendation itsel
house with some who backed mitt romney and also will be trying to sell his plan to avoid the so called fiscal cliff about spending cuts that kick in at the end of next month. it was another down day on wall street as investors grow increasingly worried about whether they can avoid financial disaster. they are deadlocked over raising taxes on well, the they are americans. -- wealthier americans. sea think he should stop campaigning. >>> they are working out an agreement and he is back on the campaign trail, presumably with the same old talking points we are quite familiar with. >> reporter: but they say the white house is fully engaged while taking his case to the public. >> now that the election is over, we should stop talking to them about these vital issues i think is bad advice. >> reporter: how the president is taking his message to social media i will have that during my next update. allison burns, ktvu channel 2 morning news. >>> and city leaders are asking for advanced warning in the event same sex marriage becomes formally legalized. california's voter approve ban on gay marria
romney. he really should be sitting down having lunches with john boehner, friendly lunches. that's what peggy noonan writes because they got to get a deal and they're growing further and further apart. it looks like we're about to sail over the cliff. you know what? rush limbaugh said yesterday that that is exactly what the democrats want to happen. >> welfare state, santa claus is what secures votes for them. the welfare state is what guarantees a permanent underclass, which they need. so we if over the cliff. it's a win. everybody's taxes go up. you need that revenue to pay for your welfare state. in addition, what else happens? you get cuts in the military! you don't think a democrat likes that? if -- believe me democrats can't wait for military cuts, defense cuts. my whole life that's the only thing they want to cut! here it is just waiting for them. it's already done. all we have to do is go over the cliff! >> steve: yep. >> gretchen: there is a lot of relevancy to that because who won the presidential el
inclusiveness theme, is that a jab of the romney 47% comments as well? >> he was saying you just can't divide the country and romney said 47% of them believe they're entitled and then there is, you know, the rest of us and we're never going to get them, i think what ryan was saying was, of course we can get them. we just have to talk to them. and that, of course, brooke, you've been talking about this today, this plays into the whole fiscal cliff debate up on capitol hill, which is republicans trying to decide whether they're going to go over that cliff in order to preserve a tax cut for the wealthiest 2% of americans. this is a big -- >> a big moment. a big moment for the republican party. let me just put it -- i want to hear a little bit more of the sound and we'll keep the conversation going. take a listen. >> both parties tend to divide americans into our voters and their voters. let's be really clear. republicans must steer far clear of that trap. we must speak to the aspirations and the anxieties of every american. >> i've heard it suggested that the problem is that the american people
criticized governor romney's plan based on the premise there is not enough revenue in the loop homes. he has agreed to the flame work, revenues or the table. we will give you $800 billion. that is great starting point. president has insulted republicans who are going out on the limb by wanting to be more pragmatic about this by coming to the congress which even among the most liberal writers in it is not a serious proposal. the reality it has to be some point spending becomes the conversation, not revenue. >> we have given quite a bit up. we have given up $2.5 trillion. >> you gave up 2.5 in budget gimmicks. things that were going to end anyway. >> boehner and cantor do not want to tax the wealthy donors. that is what it comes down to. are we going to balance this budget? it's the engine of the economy it's going to be middle-class americans -- >> i'm giving you an honest. >> heather: this has to be the last word in five seconds. >> if i gave you every tax increase you wanted, it would take us one time for the solution, we have to talk about spending cuts. >> heather: as we discussed in the
in fact not the subject at all at the republican convention in tampa in august. as mitt romney was trying to win the presidentee again, george w. bush was really a recluse. i think now that the election is over the republicans lost. he wants to have a role in one of his causes. immigration is a passion he shares with his brother jeb, former governor of florida who is thinking of his own political future and possibly a white house run and wants to help in the reset of the republican party which will include taking a serious look at actually finally engaging on immigration reform. jon: fair to say hispanics did not exactly flock to mitt romney this time around. george w. bush did pretty well with them both four years ago and eight years ago. >> reporter: very well, he got about 41% in his last election, that is a number republicans are going to have to meet in order to win the demographics of a presidential run and get a coalition that gets you the map to win the white house. 71-27, which it was this time is not going to get you the white house. you have to be upwards of 40%, possibly in fu
mitt romney for a private lunch. it's their first meeting since the election. and this his victory speech, obama promised to engage with romney and consider his ideas. >> a lot of people didn't think the lunch would ever happen. >> interesting if he's going to be talking about ideas, mitt romney's idea had been to reach some sort of a cap on it 00 mem deductions. >> he would have just extended the bush tax cuts and then the other stuff would have been -- but if romney had been elected, whether bad long term to extend them, that's one thing, but he would have extended -- this is a weird argument to be having to have everything hinging on on the 2% that are -- suddenly as i've said before, suddenly everybody loves the bush tax cuts. so weird. >> flips the tables on who likes what. >> it all goes back to the line in the band. obama first time around caved and his base never for gave him for extending the bush tax cuts when he said he wouldn't. >> maybe the republicans should be reconsidering the tough line that they drew back in july of 2011 because this is a situation where i think i
to oppose romney. so that's like 2:1. >> you're not adding in the seiu. >> down at $14 million. i'm looking at the "wall street journa journal"'s page on super pacs. i've got the restore america's future 1rks 42, priorities usa -- >> if you add up all the super pa pacs, they barely balance out the union involvement. >> sciu was down ninth, 14.7 million. >> why are you arguing about this will? the results are out. >> are there lessons for business in the advertising campaigns by the super pacs? assuming that one side went wrong here, where did they go wrong? >> you're focusing on the super pacs and of course it's about the strategists and how they went about it. and the simple fact is the democrats understood the demographic changes whether you're talking about african-american, hispanics, single women. and understanding the changes taking place. i think the republican party is still rooted to a large september extent in the past. if you look at the nature of the people involved on either side, it was i think predictable that one set of advisers was in touch and the others weren't. >> martin
of an obama recovery. and now that governor romney is no longer and the electoral politics are behind us they're really in a box. on the one hand they now are tied to the idea that they have to invest in something that's pro-growth. but this idea that you repeal obama care and we get growth -- >> why is it unreasonable for the gop to want to extend the eligibility age for medicare, to want to fix colas for social security? these things have been around for a long time. >> because you're balancing the budget on the backs of vulnerable people. >> democrats have supported these kinds of things. they essentially want to means test medicare. i'm not sure i agree with this but they want a progressive shift in that. why is that a bad thing? >> going after seniors who are now eligible at 65 and bumping up the eligibility age when you're talking about people word in some cases long term unemployed, in jobs where they are making -- can't pay their bills. let's remember where this deficit came from. it came from the iraq war run off budget. it came from a financial crisis that rewarded a lot of executiv
perry wanted and was mocked for it. unfortunately by mitt romney. or the people that have been here 20 years as newt gingrich said put them on a path to citizenship. in other words the gop made a mockery out of dealing with hispanic immigrants and i think that's a crucial point in their defeat. >> there's no question that the way that the gop is approaching this immigration issue is similar to generations ago they approached affirmtive action with the black community. these are turn offs when you don't have a clear discussion what a low wage income earner needs. especially on this question because they have family members that are here illegally. larry that's not the major problem we're seeing today with the latino community and the hispanics especially those coming from mexico. this community of people of the last generation have come in and adopted this policy if you will that there's nothing wrong with government dependency. one question to say do they come in and work hard. they work hard and work hard at a low wage. they are open territory important the democrats to say let's unio
, donald, has been on our program a lot. he was a big supporter of romney. there were stories going around that you said, dad, pull it back a bit. you don't have to be so negative on the president. is that what happened? >> it was fascinating because this was a widely circulated report that was without fact at all, and not one reporter actually called and asked the question you just did, which is, is that true? no, it wasn't. my father has been a very important part of the dialogue. he's been saying a lot of things that other people, you know, not wanting to be in a space where they're talking about politics, they don't see it as advantageous. they're not really speaking their minds. it would not be my place to tell him to tone anything down. >> are you worried about the fiscal cliff? how is business going? you're an entrepreneur in your own right. i want to talk to you about business, but how you preparing for the cliff? >> well, there's no way one can be preparing. you have to be think about uncertainty as you make your investment decision. in terms of fiscal policy, obviously there's a
, stuart, mitt romney and the republicans beat up on president obama for the last three years for cutting medicare at $716 billion. he has already showed he is willing to take a big bite out of a major entitlement program. stuart: hold on a second. i do remember it. that is not reform. that is not reforming the structure of entitlement programs. that is the issue. >> i think the focus has been on medicare. the attention now needs to be on medicare inside the aca. there were large structural reforms in the way healthcare was playing out. in fact, last year, we had a slower rate of growth and health care spending that we have had in quite a time. whether president has proposed is part of the current negotiations is another $300 billion cut in medicare. stuart: that is a cut. you do understand, that what we really -- >> stuart, that just is not true. we have not seen them play out. certainly, we will have to be coming back every year. usually, through a committee process where people vote at the end of the day. the republicans decided to take another course around the debt ceiling. i do not
. mitt romney gave away millions and millions of dollars. host: things like capital gains dividends and other things that benefit wealthier in comes? guest: the caplet gains and dividends is the classic break that benefits the wealthy. they think it is correct if they receive more than 90% of the benefit. people and the middle class get a little benefit from that break. the majority of the break goes to the wealthy. host: there is a recent story from politico. host: how significant of these deductions? guest: they can be important. the goal is to not get rid of the budget deficit. lots of people do not want to get rid of the budget deficit. they want to get it down to a manageable level. opinions differ. you can make a big dent through closing or reducing the loopholes. host: do you expect them to play a role? could they end up on the chopping block? guest: republicans have put them on the table. i think you probably will see some of both. this is a process that will go on for the better part of the next year. during that process, you will see some of both. host: john mckinnon is a
like. but i do think it's awfully important that we not come out of this process and mitt romney is paying the same rate of taxes that he paid before this process began. >> gregg: i got to leave it that, i'm out of time. thank you both. >> thank you. >> heather: coming up, new controversy over the potential appointment of u.n. ambassador susan rice to be the next secretary of state. several republican lawmakers are raising red flags asking why ambassador rice wrongly insisted the deadly attack in benghazi, libya was because of opposition to an anti-muslim film. now a form attorney general, delving deeper into the ambassador's record. we'll speak with general judge jeanine pirro. >> what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video the capital one cash rewards card gives you 1% cash back on all purchases, plus a 50% annual bonus. and everyone...but her likes 50% more cash. but i'm upping my game. do you want a candy cane? yes! do you want the puppy? yes! do you want a tricycle? yes! do you want 50 per

"newsroom" at 30 past the hour, house speaker john boehner is meeting with house republicans this morning. and a news conference is set to take place in about 30 minutes. ma president obama says no deal will be reached without higher
this year, worked with mitt romney, on with us, author of "unintended consequences," and you say if you're going to raise taxes, you have to get something back which is what? >> make any tax increase, rolling back bush tax cuts, for example, conditional upon reaching agreement that stop the debt growing as a percent of gdp. they can't reach the agreement by the end of the year so as a part of this, agree to retroactively roll back bush tax cuts if they reach agreements. >> the democrats thought they did enough deficit cutting. >> not even close. >> right. >> 0%, you need $900 billion of tax increases or spending cuts to stop debt growing as a percent of gdp. on the $900 billion you need, you need more than that. the president, who wants to support his spending, needs enormous tax increases, and public opinion says he can blame tax increases on republicans if he's over the cliff so his threat to go over the cliff, i think, is very credible, and i think the republicans are in a very procare yows negotiating position because if they are blamed for this, they'll loss the house, and if they
disparity. things like that. mitt romney's tax rate. those come up in that argument. listen, it may be certainly they wanted to do it before the end of the year. this having been a leverage buyout, they like to keep their leverage ratio pretty high. 4.5 times. then they generate cash flow and pay it down and go to capital markets and borrow another billion dollars and they pay two more dollars to their holders who continue to be some of the lbo firms that took it private. >> that's a game plan that works. >> it has worked well. >> rates are so low. why doesn't everybody do that? >> works well. as a former fully owned by private equity they are more comfortable with leverage than others are. >> a level of comfort that i find to be -- they are insensitive to the economy and they're a winner in obama care. 2014 begins and i'm picking numbers up. hca. even with this leverage. raising numbers, hca, 2014. i'm doing that right now. cramer firm is taking up numbers. >> you did it in your head. >> i did. i'm going to ask the sales force to go out with it and i think he can get the stock movi
tomorrow when republican mitt romney has been invited to have lunch with the president here at the white house. their first post-election meeting, jon. jon: wow! what is the latest from republicans on what the president has to say today? >> reporter: speaker john boehner just had a news conference on capitol hill and he expressed frustration because he is saying look, republicans put some tax revenues on the table but what they see the democratic side trying to pull entitlement reforms like medicare off the table. john boehner basically saying he thinks the spending situation is sort of a freight train that is coming at the nation right now. republicans senator mitch mism the leader in the senate -- mitch mcconnell blasted the president of saying he is doing is too much campaigning and not governing. take a listen. >> it is over. he won. congratulations. we have a hard deadline here however. and it is still, he is still out on the campaign trail, kind of celebrating. this is the problem. if the president really wants to reach an dwreechlt he needs to be talking with members of his own pa
: if you are just waking up here is a great story. despite west virginia going to mitt romney democrats dominate state wide in offices. meaning it is an uphill battle for our next guest. she is a feprail representative and prochoice. shellie capito announced her candidaciy for the senate seat. what challenges lie ahead for her? joining me is west virginia congresswoman shellie moore capito. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> gretchen: you are garnering a lot of attention, why is that? >> even thope the past election just ended, there is always excitement about the next one and i think that a chance to pick up a seat in west virginia for republican system good news and i want to get out there early to garner as much support as i could. >> steve: you would be the first woman senator from west virginia. >> i would be and we haven't had a republican since the 1950s. >> steve: you would be going up against j. rockefeller . what is different about your candidacy? >> i better reflectt what west virginia's are thinking. we have coal and natural gas losing their jobs particularlyy in the c
that the republicans offered, this is just the romney-ryan plan that the american voters said no to. other than destroying our earned benefit, i do not call them entitlements because we worked hard and we earned them. there are no specifics. what loopholes will they close? of course, they are going to punish the poor and middle- class. their plan still gives another huge tax cut to the 1%. people need to look at what happened to this country between fdr and nixon. look at what happened with the conservative takeover from nixon until now. host: we are going to have congressman tom cole from oklahoma who last week said in a closed-door meeting that they should agree with president obama and extend the tax cuts for middle-class americans and then fight later on for that tax cut for the wealthy. we will ask him about this latest proposal, the counterproposal from the house republicans. j.d. on twitter says -- on our republican , richard from colorado springs, colorado. caller: c-span could put on actual science. i think there is a lot of magical thinking on the part of democrats here. first of all,
article in foreign policy recently. has been was a china adviser to mitt romney. he now heads the university of chicago. but he basically wrote about the sort of two chinas or to the ages. he said there's sort of a doctor jekyll and mr. hide that's evolving to a doctor jekyll, which is the nicer of the two is the economic issue. the dr. height is the strategic asia, is the security agent. if you look at the economic asia there's heavy amounts of interdependence, everybody is investigating each other. $19 billion in regional trade which includes india. if you look at the security asia, national entity, orders dispute, historical grievances just are driving things apart and you're seeing real impact on these. in the has its own problems in the region across china region across china. region across chandigarh on the border dispute. if you look at this is something that you want to be deeply engaged in or do you look at this is basically something that you can ride along and freeload and let america and canada and japan handled? >> steve, your question -- >> i'm and freeload, by t
if romney didn't win. this fiscal cliff negotiation seems doomed. am i being pessimistic? >> we're basically spending like europeans, but being taxed like americans. at some point you got to decide which you want. basically american government spending now is getting close to norwegian levels. and at that point, you can't have american tax levels. >> brian: what is their level? >> they spend 46% of gdp and people pay that. that's reflected in their taxes. america is basically borrowing $188 million every hour in washington. seven days a week, 24 hours a day, thanksgiving, ramadan, whatever. that gap cannot be closed by sticking to to the rich. >> brian: don't you think the president realizes that or do you think he fully realizes that in. >> oh, yeah, he does. this is the cunning thing. he's going to blame it on the rich, blame it on the republicans. but right now if you're just an average working guy with an average income, your taxes are going to go up because for him -- pour for the president, it's not about the economy. it's about government. it's about the size of government. not the ec
difference, one reason why people like me look at former presidential candidate mitt romney talk about npr or planned parenthood. the number one answer for balancing the budget is foreign aid. which if you really wanted to balance the budget and you don't always have to go to the department of justice or whatever it may be. but over the next ten years, 90% of federal outlays will be medicare, medicaid, social security, defense spending and interest on the debt. you can wipe everything else out and you'll basically -- >> it's like what you were talking about in the last hour, to rational exuberance. americans want it, want it now, and don't want to pay for it. there's a certain quality in american democracy that just allows us to be completely self-deluded. >> dan brought up an grinterestg point, the debt. which they're going to go up, at that point, you've got a serious problem on your hands. >> why wouldn't -- as a leader of the free world, why wouldn't you be saying i've got to get these entitlements under control? they're not even talking about it, not addressing it on these sides. >> i
results where mitt romney is below 30%, you can really see the republican's party deliberate strategy to annual nies paying off. and so when we look at as a party and we look at the demographic changes in the country in the west but also give consideration to the fact that some of the fastest growing latino states are north carolina and ohio and not necessarily the southwest border states and states in the rocky mountain west. we also have to look in this election at the fact that we have given up as republicans five u.s. senate seats in two election cycles because the nominees in those seats were manifestly unqualified to serve in the united states senate from an intellect you'll level and knowledge level and social extreme level and their candda sis were rejected not just by moderate swing voters but by republican voters as well. if you look at the functional majority of democrats in the senate. when you nominate people like murdock in indiana, mr. i'm not a witch o'donnell. ken bucken in cal colorado. it's impossible to advance a conservative agenda in the country because to do tha
